In August 2017, the Office of the City Auditor released a report on Demolition Permits that highlighted areas of concern for the current demolition permit process. City Council followed up in December 2017 with Resolution No. 20171214-066 requesting Development Services Department staff to seek public input and propose a revised process to ensure that appropriate reviews and safety measures take place before demolition activities, and adequate notification is given to interested parties.
